Day Twenty!

Wax! wax! wax!
After completing and sprueing up my little horses I've begun to work on the "real" work of 3 dimensionally illustrating water movements. Just last night, at the end of the day, my back aching and my eyeballs throbbing, I made three "Rivulets" and two "Eddys". These will be cast sterling silver pendants, and they are very very very good to look upon!
I have begun my research for my "Reflection Paper", choosing to focus on the Mississippi River and it history, geography and idiosyncrasies as the main impetus for my work. A river is a magnificent thing!
Did you know? The Mississippi River is the largest river system in the United States and also the largest of North America, it is the fourth longest river in the world and the tenth most powerful river in the world.
Johnny Cash was referring to the Mississippi when he wrote and sang "Big River".
